Easel Card Tutorial - so much fun!!!!

This is such a fun card to make. I’ve made them all different sizes.

A2 Easel Card Supplies:
4 ¼ x 11 cardstock for card base
Scored at 5 ½ and 2 ¾
Cardstock cut for layers
Stamped and colored image
Ribbon & Embellishments

1. Score card base (4 ¼ x 11 in. piece of cardstock) at 5 ½ and at 2 ¾ . (This should give you ½ and ½ again. So you can adjust that for any size card you would like.)

2. Add layers for card front and inside as you like. I do my layers decreasing by 1/8th inch each time.

3. Add image and embellishments. On the inside of card add a button (or two or three, or a brad or a bow) this will become your ‘stopper’ for your easel.

Stamps:  Victoria Case, sentiment is computer generated
Paper:  GP White, American Crafts solids, Basic Grey Eerie
Accessories:  Copic Markers, Copic Airbrush System, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Ribbon, Buttons, Scor-Pal

This is adorable Jana! I think you should do this tutorial for the next monthly Whimsy challenge at SNR! :)

And do you have measurements for a 5.5 x 5.5? Can you make one that big? Love these cards!
